According to DXOmark, the cameras on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are the best smartphone cameras in the market right now. The new scores put the iPhone 8 series ahead of the Google Pixel and HTC U11 which had the previous highest scores of 90 each.
DxOMark just revamped the way it reviews mobile devices, the site announced earlier this month. Though there can be some underexposure in very low light, iPhone 8's ability to properly recognise faces along with flash makes it a good option to click photos indoors as well, notes the post.
The sensor improvements and new features in the iPhone 8 gave it a score of 92, whilst the dual-camera iPhone 8 Plus scores 94 ...
As far as drawbacks go, DxOMark noticed that there was a color cast in low and indoor lighting, a few exposure concerns, some autofocus issues, and noticeable noise in low-light environments. For the iPhone 8 Plus, Apple has used a dual-camera setup, like the one saw on the iPhone 7 Plus. The primary wide-angle lens has an f/1.7 aperture and the secondary telephoto lens has an f/2.8 aperture.
The Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were launched on September 12th along with the highly anticipated iPhone X. In India, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus became available for pre-orders on September 22nd for a starting price of Rs 64000 for the iPhone 8 64GB storage variant. The new "Portrait Lighting" feature allows users to adjust the lighting for portrait shots. It basically wipes the floor with every other rival flagship, including the well-received Google Pixel and HTC U11. Obviously, the Pixel is nearly a year old now, so it bodes well that Apple's new leader is breaking new ground.
DxOMark performed a lot of exhaustive tests on Apple's new phones, and some of those tests were pretty lab-heavy evaluation processes that pushed the cameras to their limit. It features outstanding image quality, zoom for those needing to get closer to their subjects, and an industry-leading Portrait mode for artistic efforts.
